Basically, I can only write when I am drinking. It seems to be the only time I can think about my past and all that happened. It is the only way I have of dealing with it at the moment.

Don't EVER feel bad for expressing yourself...

I hope you can find a way to continue to write without self-medicating. If it is in there to come out when you are drinking, it is in there to come out when you are sober as well.

I wish you all the best, and thank you for the poems.

InjunE, thanks for sharing those poems from your heart, whether under the influence or not. I would love to see what you can write without the booze tho.

While your poems may have been triggering in some ways, I appreciate the sincerity behind them, and somewhat understand some of the feelings behind them.

Take care

Victor

I just wanted to say thanks. I would say you have no idea what it means to me, but I'm sure you do. I just needed to know someone understood what I felt, maybe even felt the same way. Maybe I nede a therapist or ssomething, maybe I don't, I don't know. But thanks for your responses, it really helps me personally, knowing that their are others out there like me.

I can relate to and understand your poems so much. You're not alone. Your story is similar to mine in some ways... I'm a victum of incest as well.

Your poems are so powerful to me. Even if written under the influence they have meaning and express your truths. I surely understand using alcohol as a way to get in touch with the wounded boy inside.

Just know that alcohol or drug addiction is a one way journey toward a meaningless death, but it can be overcome. I have and I'm clean and sober 18 or months now, with no desire to take any mind altering drug.

Thoughts of revenge are sweet. Taking actual physical revenge makes the abusing bastards the winner in the end, so don't do it. Thinking it is ok.

You are so fortunate to have a family and sons to protect. Watch them grow and let them heal YOU as you reveal in their innocence and experiences of life. Little birds need to learn to fly. You can teach them all they need to know. But sooner or later they'll need the freedom to fly alone. You and they are eagles.

InjunE, thanks for being here and for your poetry.
Yes, a therapist would probably be a great idea if you can find a good one. Take care--of yourself.
